Led Zeppelin for me. I think that is why When the levee breaks became one of my fave tracks. And is very under-rated imo.

My first Zep album was "Houses of the Holy" (Christmas '75, I was 12). To me it has a very special + unique atmosphere, and I still can recall the mood it once created.

1991 or 1992. I was 12 years old. The album (more specifically 'Stairway') made me a fan. Then Houses of the Holy, then everything else.

Led Zeppelin II, fall 1971, I was in the 7th grade.  A friend's older brother had it - that is how I first heard it.  Up to then I was listening to my older brother's albums -  the Beatles, the Stones, Hendrix, Cream, Creedence, CSNY Four Way Street, and the radio.  I must have heard WLL on the radio but I will never forget the day I listened to the entire second album.  It sounded like nothing else I had ever heard.

My brother bought II back in 1974. After hearing that I bought IV on vinyl. So IV was the first one I bought. The next one was Physical Graffitti on Vinyl when it came out, then Presence on 8 Track when it came out. First cassette was CODA when it was released in 1982, first CD was III last year!!!

My best friend had Presence and Song Remains the Same on 8-track and we played them non-stop in his AMC Levi's Gremlin. Stop laughing. I know how 70's this sounds.

I found the only Led Zeppelin album I could in a used store. It was LZIII. I wore the grooves out of that baby and spent hours turning the wheel on the album cover to see all of the pictures. I even found the inscription on the vinyl, "do what thou wilt".

I think starting out with that record gave me a unique perspective of the band as more than just the greatest rock band, but as a great all around band that could do anything.
